Abstract
Fall 2013 CSCI-P434 is a course for young computer scientists working in the field of software and systems. It is offered to a class of 34 undergraduate 31 students and two AIs covering core Computer Science distributed systems curricula (http://salsahpc.indiana.edu/csci-p434-fall-2013/). Distributed systems form a rapidly changing field of computer science. We study
the evolutional changes in computing landscape characterized by parallel, distributed, and cloud computing systems. We use FutureGrid testbed to build our prototype systems and have an in-depth study the essential issues in practice such as scalability, performance, availability, security, energy-efficiency, and workload balancing.
Use of FutureSystems
HPC and VMs on Euca or OpenStack similar to Fall 2012 B534 class
Scale of Use
Each student will need modest resources
